Back with Harry for another round!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

What an absolute pleasure to be back in the world of Harry Potter!  When I finished the series 7 years ago the first thing I said was that I would like to read it again some day.  And now a member of my book club picked The Sorcerer's Stone for our November read!  Thrilled!  And this time I am listening on Audible...  and loving every second of it!

Die Heiligtümer des Todes // The Deathly Hollows!!!
Harry Potter und die Heiligtümer des Todes - J.K. Rowling,Klaus Fritz

German and english review (spoilerfree)

 

Nachdem ich das Buch im August(!!!) angefangen habe zu lesen, habe ich es doch heute tatsächlich fertig bekommen und kann jetzt ENDLICH offiziell und mit stolz sagen, dass ich die komplette Serie endlich gelesen habe. Als sie damals rauskamen, hat Mini-Ich nur bis zum 4. Band gelesen, weil es mir einfach zu düster wurde. Inzwischen kann es für mich nicht düster genug sein LOL

 

Ich kann echt nicht glauben, dass ich so lange für das Buch gebraucht habe. 2 Monate. Dabei hat mir das Buch von Anfang bis zum Ende gefallen, die erste Hälfte war ein bisschen sehr langgezogen und hat sich ein bisschen geschleppt, trotzdem fand ich es super interessant. Die zweite Hälfte wurde dann doch auf einmal viel belebter (es tut ja schon weh das zu sagen, wenn so viele die zweite Hälfte des Buches nicht überstehen.)

 

Eigentlich ist das auch schon alles, was ich wirklich dazu sagen will. Ich mochte den Band, ich mochte wie alles abgeschlossen wurde, wie Dinge erklärt wurden und wie all die Fragen beantwortet wurden. Eine wunderschöne Schleife am Ende um alles abzuschließen und zu zeigen wie es mit den Dreien weitergeht, die Familien, die sie gegründet haben. Ich hätte ja nur zu gerne erfahren wie es Luna geht, was bei ihr so los ist. Ist sie okay? Geht es ihr gut? LUNA LOVEGOOD!!!!

 

***

 

After starting the book in august (!!!), I actually finally managed to finish it today and now I can officially and with pride say, that I finished reading the whole series. Back in the day when these books were released I actually stopped reading after the 4th book, cause things just got way too dark for me. Nowadays, it can't be dark enough LOL

 

I still can't believe that it actually took so long for me to finish this book. 2 months. Especially since I really enjoyed the book from beginning to the end, I mean the first half of the book, was a bit slower and things kinda dragged on a little bit, I still thought it was super interesting, though. The second half of the book really picked up speed and the story really came to live (which is a terrible pun, considering how many people didn't survive the second half.)

 

That's actually all I really wanna say about this. I really loved the book, and really liked how everything was wrapped up, lots of things got explained and questions were being answered. And then all wrapped up with a nice little bow, showing us these three and how life went for them after everything, the families they build for themselves. I just really wanted to know what Luna is doing, what's going on with her. Is she okay? Is she doing well? LUNA LOVEGOOD!!!!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

This was such a great read, and a sad one too.
I cried near the very end. Such an incredible loss, to the story, to the series.
Yet I find myself again wondering if this is one of my favorites. The twists and turns in this one, as well as Dumbledore finally letting Harry further into the knowledge he has, is what keeps you turning page after page.
I just hope the movie does this one justice. I'm not going to hold my breath though, the book is always better.
